Proposal Title: ISA Computer Resource Request
Submitted by: Denalsky, ISA
Remarks:
The proposer's request for computer equipment was also requested in Student Technology Proposal S-00-001.  The proposer might consider submitting a new proposal requesting that a few computers in the general access lab be adapted with specialized software or keyboards so that a greater number of students could have access to the equipment during a broader range of hours.  The proposer is also reminded to consider the cost and maintenance of software user licenses in any future proposals.

Proposal Title: New Equipment, Software and Student Access for Sound and Video Editing Lab
Submitted by: Rainey, HTC, and Scarboro, CIT
Remarks:
This proposal noted that the labs were open during Fall 2000, although utilizing a model that the proposers did not consider sufficient. TFERT acknowledged this, but the consensus is not to fund staffing at this time. The proposers are invited to submit a request for a full year of staffing funds (for FY02) later this spring.

Proposal Title: Additional Open Access Hours for the Multimedia Authoring Lab
Submitted by: Scarboro, CIT
Remarks:
TFERT recommends that in spring 2001, proposer request funding for FY02 in order to evaluate the most effective hours for the lab and the required staffing for those hours with the following friendly amendments: Consider re-submitting a proposal for staff funding for one year only in order to evaluate the need for the staffing position, and then if proposer determines that additional staffing is required, we recommend that proposer request a permanent staff position out of the general operating budget for FY03. Clarify the need for operating supplies. Operating supplies will not generally be considered for funding except for special projects.

Proposal Title: Departmental Technical Support
Submitted by: Murphy, A&S
Remarks:
TFERT appreciated that this proposal included a method to "move away" from the tech fee fund support, however, the request for funds was seen as one for administrative departmental support, primarily technical. The consensus of TFERT was that funding for this position should come out of the general operating budget/personnel allocations.

Proposal Title: DVD Production
Submitted by: Siddiqi, CNST
Remarks:
Although some fee-paying distance learning students in credit-bearing courses may benefit, individuals signing up for continuing education certification courses do not contribute to the tech fee funds and should not be primary beneficiaries of tech fee funds. BOR recommends that tech fee funds not be used for research, but in this proposal, the proposer suggests that funds will be used to "build upon the experience gained by the principle investigator."

Proposal Title: Student Access and Supplies for Two Computer Classroom/Laboratories
Submitted by: Stevens, HTC
Remarks:
Proposer states that he would use tech fee funds for staffing and funds that currently support staffing would be redirected. Staffing would be used for computer preventive maintenance, which is more of an administrative or general operating expense and is not a high priority for tech fee funds.
